Vibration Injury Claims
A vibration injury is an industrial injury which mainly affects people who operate vibrating tools.
Vibration injuries can develop from the frequent use of vibrating power tools and equipment, often causing a painful and disabling disorder affecting the blood vessels, muscles, nerves and joints across the body. Vibration injuries include hand arm vibration syndrome (HAVS), also known as vibration white finger (VWF), carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) and whole-body vibration (WBV).
The Control of Vibration at Work Regulations were introduced under the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 to place a duty of care on employers to protect their employees from this danger.
If you are diagnosed with a vibration injury as a result of using equipment at work, you may be able to make a vibration injury claim.
